Ascent Trip Report

Hiked down to the lake to make a trailhead and then bushwhacked up past outhouse to this easy HP. The other HP nearest to the water tank appeared to be the higher of the two candidate spots. That is logical sense it is a much larger self enclosed ring area but despite that it sure felt like the southern most point is the true state park HP. Since they were entered in as two separate points unlike the CHPs, I repeated the same hike to the other one in case some day they obliterate one or the other candidate points
